Running week 3:

90 seconds of running, 90 seconds of walking, 3 minutes of running, 3 minutes of walking. x 2.

It really isn't that hard.  I've completed 1 of 3 days.  Obviously I'm gaining endurance... but I've also cut my pace down.  After my 3rd run of week 2, I couldn't freaking walk the next day.  Not like the sore pain, but the pain pain... lower inside knees.  Is it because I am weak kneed? Or is it my shoes (I have new ones... I'm pretty sure they are cross trainers but I'm not positive)?  Do I not stretch enough?  The first 90 seconds of the run yesterday hurt, but after that I just had a dull ache.  This morning during  my weight work out I had no trouble doing squats, but a hard time straightening my legs all the way to stretch... weird?  I'm not sure what it is... and since I'm not a regular runner everything feels weird.

I'm weighing in at 141.2 this morning with my period... so I think I have a good chance of making it to 139 by the 21st.  Especially being on the "My Client Sucks" Diet.  Let me tell you how it works.  You worked so late the night before you sleep in or go to the gym in the morning and don't have time to make breakfast so you run to starbucks on your way to work and grab a Venti misto and a tasty treat (400 calories total).  You sit in the same chair for 12-15 hours, getting up to go to the bathroom and the printer.  You aren't in your office, you're at the client, so there isn't coworker's food to nibble on, just what you brought.  And since you were running late, you brought a frozen meal and an apple (400 calories total).  By the time you get home after 9 pm, you're too tired to drink, too tired to cook, and you resort to rice cakes with salsa on top, or a banana (100 calories).  Then you go to bed so you can wake up for the gym in the morning.  Voila... you have burned roughly 2000 calories, and eaten 900.  No wonder I'm not gaining weight eating doughnuts for breakfast every day.  Honestly though.. that should stop.

Hopefully everyone filed their taxes.. I owe my state $18.. so I'm putting it off until the deadline.

  1. The knee problem could be caused by the shoes or by the fact that you have weak knees. It's really hard to tell. Maybe go to a special shore store?

    I'm filing today. I do them myself using turbo tax...haha. We owe so much federal this year, it totally sucks. We owe some for state too!
